An Upcoming Wedding~
We just found out today that our son has asked his girlfriend to be his wife, and joy abounds in our household. This has been months in planning, and three days in execution. All did not go completely smoothly, as three nights ago Zach was going to ask Erica's parents for their blessing (he is old fashioned that way), but they could not get to the phone together as her mother was out of the house. Zach had to call them later out of the hearing of Erica, but the only time he could do that was at a time when he and Erica were together. Rather than make an excuse he simply tolder her that he had to go out to make a phone call, that the call would be important to her in the near future, and that she needed to trust him that all was well. She agreed, so out he went, the call was made, and indeed all was well.
They have not set a date yet, but a wedding is in the offing, and both her family and our family, and all our friends are thrilled for both of them. When they choose the day an hour for the wedding they will let everyone know so we can all be ready.
Another wedding is in the offing, and the groom has asked permission of His Father to go get his bride, but she was not ready. But how could this happen? How could the bride not be ready for her own wedding? There is a simple answer; the bridesmaids were all asleep, and had not prepared the bride for her groom. So the Groom sent His servants to wake the bridesmaids and warn them that "The Bridgroom IS HERE, come out to meet Him". This story is told in the prophecy in Matthew 25:1-13.
For a wedding to take place the bride must know when the groom will come for her, so she can be prepared and ready to meet him, and go into the wedding with him. If the groom comes and finds her not ready in her finery, then the wedding will be cancelled. We must not let that happen. We must warn the bridesmaids of the coming of the Groom.
